Panama Fishing June 14, 2019
May 31st through Jun 14th 2019
It has been great the last few weeks here at Hooked on Panama Lodge!
First off, my friend Norman Froboese and Larry Metzger came down and fished for 3 days, with a few more days just kicking back at the lodge. While they were here, we had 2 more groups come in that fished for 4 days; Ward and Sherri Jones Brandon, Katy, Jeff and Nicie and Gordon Kurton and Ashley Wahlstrom. Right after they all left, we had John and Anita Hertner here fishing for 5 days. They were here for their 53rd wedding anniversary!
There was a smorgasbord of fish caught. They had too many yellow fin tunas to count no monsters but a good 70 to 80 lb. average with some mahi mahi, pargos, sailfish, mullet snappers and groupers mixed in We also had good action on the rooster fish around 20 with about 15 averaging 30lbs.
Brandon released his first blue marlin estimated weight 500lbs and John released his black marlin which was on his bucket list. Ward didn’t get his black marlin so we will be seeing him again soon.
As always great dinners, desserts and company!
